No one to love me, no one to care
And the girl I'm loving, she don't play fair
She's gone and left me, I shouldn't worry
Why should I care?

I got a mind to ramble
I got a mind to leave the town
Oh, the girl I've been a loving
She's gone and throwed me down

How could she leave me, so cold in hand
She give my money to another man
She's gone and left me, I shouldn't worry
Why should I care?

Good luck is a fortune, mama
And it's bound to come my way
I'm down now, baby
But I will be up someday

She pawned my diamonds, my watch and chains
Would've pawned herself but she felt ashamed
She's gone and left me, I shouldn't worry
Why should I care?

Sometime I wonder, mama
Who put the jinx on me?
Well, I ain't no bad fella
And I don't intend to be

She left me sinkin' down on my bed
Hopin' and wishing that I was dead
She's gone and left me, I shouldn't worry
Why should I care?

[Incomprehensible] mama
That big boat whistle blows
I'm leavin your city, mama
And I won't be back no more
